Ozone Zipline Adventures
You can soar through the trees on a series of zip lines and walk across sky bridges on the Midwest's largest zip line canopy tour. With the March 31, 2012 opening of two new zip lines, you'll be able to zip from YMCA Camp Kern (Ozone), soar 200 feet above the federally designated "scenic" Little Miami River and end up by the Fort Ancient state memorial. Zipping over the water the view encompasses a 360-degree view of the river, and if you twirl around even the valley and the Jeremiah Morrow Bridge, Ohio's tallest bridge.

Ozone's Newest Zip Lines

The two new zip lines take you over the river and back again. One starts at the top of Ozone Tower, a multilevel platform that is 45 feet above the ground, and more than 200 feet above the west bank of the Little Miami River. After a 50-second ride across the 1,300-foot-long zip line, you'll land on a platform on the Fort Ancient side of the river. From this platform, you can connect to the second 1,100-foot-long zip line and zip back across the river to Camp Kern.
